What does a Chiropractic center do to help its patients? Do only patients with skeletal and spinal problems, or broken bones and sprains go to see chiropractors? Chiropractic care can help you address other non-skeletal health concerns such as diabetes, headaches, arthritis and joint pain, herniated discs, chronic fatigue, sciatica and fibromyalgia.
A chiropractic center in Santa Ana is equipped with medical equipment and holistic healing that relies on the human body’s natural ability to heal itself. This center prescribes lifestyle and dietary changes, along with alternative and complementary therapies.
Diabetics can benefit from chiropractic care. The chiropractor interviews and examines every diabetic patient as well, as those who are pre-diabetic, so they can put together an individualized treatment plan including diet, bio-identical hormone replacement and dietary supplements. If you or a loved one suffers from irritability before eating, weight gain or loss, lightheadedness, low testosterone/progesterone, insomnia, fatigue, lactic acidosis, fibromyalgia, increased triglycerides or increased cholesterol, you may be developing the early symptoms of diabetes.
For chiropractic patients who suffer from deep tissue injuries or arthritis, laser therapy for arthritis can become an effective and healing treatment. A chiropractor in Santa Ana is equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment and uses a Class 4 therapy laser offering therapeutic laser penetration to as deep as 15 centimeters, leading to faster healing. Where other centers employ lasers that only provide 0.5 watts of power, the laser used by the chiropractic center is classified as a Class 4 laser. Treatment results will last longer, and are most appropriate for pain management in arthritis patients and patients who have suffered a deep-tissue injury.
Finally, patients suffering from spinal conditions, such as:
• Degenerative disc diseases
• Herniated discs
• Spinal stenosis
• And other conditions
can benefit from spinal decompression therapy, which immerses the disc in nutrients. Inflamed discs lead to a compensatory spasm coming from nerve damage, not the bones or muscles in the back.
